2017 Home Builders Blitz
Habitat’s Home Builders Blitz is a partnership between Habitat affiliates and the building community to build and renovate homes across the United States, helping to fulfill Habitat’s vision of “a world where everyone has a decent place to live.” This type of build began in 2002 in Wake Forest, NC and since then has resulted in more than 1,000 safe, affordable homes across the country.
Builders and Habitat affiliates work closely to organize all aspects of building, including securing subcontractors and suppliers, fundraising and seeking donations of materials. Habitat Williamson-Maury’s 2017 Home Builders Blitz brought together 29 sponsors, and the home was completed in just 15 days by local homebuilders, contractors, and volunteers.

We are excited to welcome Sedric McFall to our homeownership program.
Sedric lives with her parents and three-year-old son, Nehemiah, in Columbia and has worked at ApCom in Franklin for the past three years. Although her parents own their home, it is much too small for a family of four and is in serious need of repairs. Sedric has always wanted a place of her own, but has been unable to find an apartment she could afford to rent
“My parents are excited for me and my son to purchase a home of our own. They know the value of homeownership and always taught me to save my money.” Sedric has done a great job of budgeting and saving money while living at home. “I love to cook and invite people over to enjoy it. We look forward to having our own space where we can celebrate special occasions with our loved ones. I cannot express how excited I am and how grateful I feel to those who are helping make this happen for me and my son.”
Thank you to our 2017 Home Builders Blitz Sponsors!
